Knitting, people! Knitting!
No, I’m not talking about a sweater or a pair of socks your grandmother knitted for you. I‘m also not referring to a tablecloth or crocheted curtains. I‘m talking about coarse woven carpets, bean bag chairs, a swing and an array of products – woven in brilliant colors, using traditional technique and with style you usually encounter in top design magazines.
That‘s what my morning with IOTA looked like – a big surprise.
And hey – what do you know! Turns out I‘m pretty good at knitting :-)
It‘s a Friday afternoon, I‘m at home – reading newspapers, slowing down my pace and welcoming the weekend‘s ambiance.
Somewhere in the horoscope section, I see a ridiculous sentence that refers to my sign – ”An unplanned trip overseas awaits, paid by someone else – a business trip or someone asking you to accompany them“.
”Come on!“ I smile to myself, ”who believes this nonsense?!“
Two days later, an email from Malta‘s Tourism Authority arrives in my mailbox. On the other side of the keyboard, lovely Janet is inviting me on an official visit to the island curtesy of Visit Malta.
”Unbelievable!“ I think to myself, ”maybe it‘s time to stop being such a cynic and realize all my dreams are close enough to grasp“.
THE KEY FASHION TRENDS TO KNOW ABOUT FOR AUTUMN – WINTER 2018/19
It is now official – daylight saving time has begun and the days have turned a bit colder.
Although it seemed for a minute like winter has failed to arrive, there‘s a big chance that while you‘re reading these lines winter will have already landed in our region.
So yes, the Israeli winter is warmer compared to farther regions abroad, but there‘s no reason it should be any less fashionable and updated. So I decided to put together a follow-up article to the trend guide I posted a few weeks ago and set some order in the various fashion trends I haven‘t addressed yet.
“You’re saying there are women who drink whiskey?” – he asked, in shock. But before I unleashed a smart-ass, feminist speech, I looked into the surprised eyes of a man who just yesterday celebrated his 87th birthday, and who has obviously seen a thing or two in his life. He smiled at me warmly and added: “my children don’t even drink wine!” Right away I knew I was in for an interesting evening.
But before I tell you all about the launch of the QUEST COLLECTION, by Scottish Whiskey brand Macallan – a soiree I was invited by my friends from James Richardson Duty Free – allow me to pour myself a glass and proudly declare: my name is Kochavit and I love whiskey!
THE KEY FASHION TRENDS TO KNOW ABOUT FOR Autumn – Winter 2018/19
Welcome back to reality!
The holiday season is over, you’ve stopped posting photos from dreamy vacations (thank god!) and as for me – the opulent family dinner season has come to an end.
I don’t know what it’s like for you, but with every year that goes by – our holiday
dinners seem to become more of a feast that’s gone out of control. If that’s not enough, during the days I had a break from all the holiday fuss, I found myself attending culinary events and Friday night dinners at friends’ houses where – how can I phrase this elegantly – common sense was left outside of the kitchen as well.
By the way, please note that a fast, effective and proven method for losing all of those extra pounds you’ve accumulated over the holidays is wearing a coat. Works every time ;-)
